I pay enough and the doctors and scientists and other professionals are all making a hundred times more money than me...

Doctors and scientific are also making a hundred times greater contribution to human knowledge and society in general than you do, so things are balanced!

You know that (of course), and I know that, but THEY (whomever they are) don't necessarily know that.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeexactly. So...which kind of snack cracker DOES suit you best? I tend towards garden vegetable Triscuits myself...

I'm not going to feed someone elses kids

How do you manage to escape paying taxes?

I don't consider that charity, it's called the law!

Don't you watch South Park? Sally Struthers gets fat and happy while poor Starvin Marvin and his family are forced to go to church under the promise of a meal...WHICH THEY NEVER RECEIVE!

Anyhow, I refuse to give missions money. They really DO force religion on people while promising healthcare and food. Let's not forget it was CHRISTIANITY that fucked most of these places up to begin with. You know what happened to the ancient Mexican cities? Catholicism. Yep. The natives were made slaves and forced to learn the new religion. They were raped and abused and diseased for some promise of eternal happiness. So screw that.

Bums...let's see... Well I know most of the bums around here are PERFECTLY capable of getting a nice job after a good shower. Even if you're missing limbs, this is the US and they can't refuse employment on grounds like those. So why do they degrade themselves? Booze and drugs. Or simply because they're lazy. When you have no assets and panhandle, you never get taxed! They have nothing, but on the other hand, credit-card owners are in debt!

I help out my loved ones but I refuse to spend time or money on a lost cause. Welfare and the American government can take care of the rest, even though I know some people abuse their privelages while those truly in need go without the full benifits.

That is THIS Satanist's view on charity. The rest may speak for themselves.

Well this Satanist does not engage in charity yet my definition of charity is giving a bunch of your money away to help people you neither know nor give a rats ass about. I enjoy giving to friends and loved ones but I consider that a gift of love or friendship not charity.

I always feel for those begging for money, especially when it is a child. However, when it is an adult......I feel no obligation whatsoever to help them. It would be aweful to be in their situation, but they should know how to survive on their own. There are organizations that offer help, they should take it upon themselves to do whatever it takes to get on their feet and not beg to strangers that are staying on their feet .
I only offer or give my attention to those whom are close to me or feel are worth it. I dont waste my energy, time and emotion on just anyone.

In addition to the replies/opinions of people so far, I would say that depending on your situation, giving to charity could be quite helpful in fostering a good image. From what I have read, several people on these boards seem to be unfortunate enough to be in a largely and strongly Christian area. Grating as it might be for some, giving to charity hardly hinders any appearance of a friendly and giving person, which is never a bad thing if you're trying to change something without getting bashed over the head with a crucifix.

I give (when I can) to Historical organizations like Civil War, WWII-WWI, Revolutionary War etc. And being an avid reenactor (mostly WWII and some Civil War) I don't mind at all giving a little to help out with restorations of historical sites. As well as vehicle upkeep or purchasing new ones for future events.

Where in California do you go to do Civil War reenactments?

I'm not poking fun just would like to go and watch an reenactment one day.

This is a good place to start

I have not been to a CW event in a long time, but I do remember the biggest battle in C.A. was the Fresno event.
